The motorcycle is more than a form of transport, it is the result of over 100 years of design development. The evolution of the motorcycle is charted here from its development by Daimler in 1885 to the Japanese superbikes of the 1990's. Landmarks in engineering and design are recorded through meticulously researched archival illustrations and contemporary documentation, and placed in their historical context. The chapters cover changes in technology, sport and racing, record breakers, custom motorcycles and much more.
